Season one of "Doomlands" first premiered on The Roku Channel in January 2022

The Roku Channel announced today that Roku Original scripted animated series "Doomlands" will return for season two.

The second season will be a continuation of season one, inviting audiences along for more adventures with the infamous Danny Doom and aspiring bartender, Lhandi, as they sling beers across a hellish wasteland in their mobile pub: The Oasis. Facing ruthless desert gangs, memory-stealing creeps, and even mean bathroom graffiti, all this crew's got to do to survive is not kill each other

"Doomlands" season 2 will feature 10, quarter-hour episodes. The series is produced by Look Mom! Productions, a Blue Ant Media Company.

Mark Little and Kayla Lorette will reprise their roles, voicing Danny Doom and Lhandi, respectively, alongside Ashley Holliday Tavares as Xanthena and Roger Bainbridge as Jep.

"Doomlands" is written by Josh O'Keefe, Roger Bainbridge, Kayla Lorette and Mark Little. Lee Porter and Josh O'Keefe serve as co-showrunners. The series is directed by Josh O'Keefe.

Season one of "Doomlands" first premiered on The Roku Channel in January 2022. The series is available exclusively for free on The Roku Channel in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K.

Colin Davis, Head of Scripted Originals, Roku: "We could not be more excited to continue working with the brilliant Josh O'Keefe on his wildly hilarious brainchild 'Doomlands.' It was so incredible to see the world of Danny Doom resonate with our streamers, and we look forward to bringing them along for more even laugh-out-loud worthy adventures in season two."

Josh O'Keefe, Creator of Doomlands: "Season 2, here we come! Bringing this project to life has been a multi-year journey and we cannot express how grateful we are that 'Doomlands' found a great home and audience on The Roku Channel. Get ready for more hell-ish fun for Danny Doom and Lhandi in season two."

Titles to debut on The Roku Channel in 2023

Roku today announced greenlights of two, new Roku Original unscripted projects: "Survival From Above" and "Lincoln Log Project" (wt). The series will premiere exclusively on The Roku Channel in 2023. "Survival From Above" is the first-ever survival competition series set entirely in rainforest treetops of Guyana, South America, with contestants suspended 100 feet off the ground. Entertainment One's (eOne) "Lincoln Log Project" (wt) brings audiences into the highly visual and physical world of professional loggers, as master builders create the ultimate dream cabins from the ground up using life-sized Lincoln Logs.

The announcement of these new series marks Roku Originals' expansion into the adventure and exploration genres, broadening the breath of original content available exclusively on The Roku Channel. The Roku Channel recently announced several highly anticipated new unscripted projects including "The Great American Baking Show," "To Paris For Love: A Reality Rom Com," "Honest Renovations," "Delicioso," "Martha Gardens," "Emeril Tailgates," "Milk Street My Family Recipe" and more.

Survival From Above: There is one place on this planet humans have yet dared call home - the canopy of the South American Rainforest. For the first time in history, ten survivalists will take survival to a whole new level. Ten people, Ten treetops, and one unpredictable jungle in one of the most extreme, adventure challenges ever attempted: all suspended 100 feet above the jungle floor. Who has the skills to survive the longest before ever stepping foot on the ground, and be the "last person hanging" for the $100,000 prize? Survival From Above will start production later this year in the rainforest of Guyana. The eight, hour-long episode series is produced by Carvan (an All3 Media company) with Dinah Lord, Rafael Montserrat and Jane McGoldrick executive producing, with Kristina Obradovic as Production Consultant.

Lincoln Log Project (wt): Inspired by Hasbro's iconic childhood toy Lincoln Logs, this build series brings fantasy to reality on a grander scale, as our master builders take ordinary log cabin design and catapult it into the stratosphere. Viewers will get an up-close look at what it takes to design the ultimate Lincoln Log cabins from the ground up, from the moment the crew yells "timber," until the keys are handed off at the front door. Each episode will dive into the artisanal and transformational process of hand-cutting and custom-crafting life-size Lincoln Logs to the surprise and delight of each cabin's new owners. "Lincoln Log Project" (wt) will start production later this year. The series' eight, hour-long episodes are produced by eOne with Tara Long, Geno McDermott, Gennifer Gardiner and Cindy Bertram executive producing.

Brian Tannenbaum, Head of Alternative Originals, Roku: "Today's series greenlights plant Roku Originals' flag in the adventure and exploration unscripted genres, which will not only excite our current streamer base, but also attract new audiences to The Roku Channel. It's an honor to work with the phenomenal teams at eOne and Caravan to create bold, premium content for audiences to enjoy for free."

Dinah Lord, Co-Founder and CEO, Caravan: "We are honored to be working with Roku on its first survival series, and looking forward to delivering this bold, innovative, and breathtaking new format which literally takes the genre in a whole new, upwards, direction!"
